The former Scotland international sustained damaged knee ligaments during training last Friday and he is to be sidelined for the next four weeks.
Bhoys winger Bobby Petta also faces a spell on the sidelines as he is still struggling with a hamstring strain.
The former Ipswich man was forced to miss Holland's game with Andorra last weekend with the injury and he is not expected to be back playing again for another two weeks.
Both will miss Wednesday's rearranged Champions League clash with Rosenborg on Wednesday.
There was some good news for the Scottish champions, with versatile Jackie McNamara returning to training after being forced to withdraw from the Scotland squad with a hamstring strain and influential midfielder Neil Lennon should be fit for the Rosenborg game, despite missing Northern Ireland's win in Malta with a groin problem.
Meanwhile, Celtic striker Chris Sutton is confident that the club win qualification to the second phase of the Champions League.
"It's good for the club to play against teams with the European caliber of Juventus, Porto and Rosenborg," said Sutton.
"They'll be extremely difficult games but we know we are capable of producing good performances and the confidence is already there from last season."
